Buy 'Bloodlines' on bandcamp: https://kwamewrite.bandcamp.com/releases
Protruded Plastics video was directed, shot & edited by Wanlov the Kubolor at North Kaneshie and Korle Gorno in Accra.
Bloodlines serves as a revo poetry with music data stream treating a nation like an organ, a continent like a body and the globe like soul. An uncut splurge of visual metaphors forged into recited poetry and fast paced rhythmic rap in fusion with Ghana's Ebo Taylor and Alhaji K. Frimpong's highlife chops cooked by ProdbyYungFly and Drumnayshin; who mixed and mastered all the pieces except Woyaaya produced by Adultree.
Live taps by Burkinabe genius Lasso, alternative EDM influenced tapes from Euiv's Baltimore den and afro house plugs from South African sounds king Mo Laudi by way of Paris. The themes are one and all - based on blessing of earth, water, wind and fire.
Bloodlines comes after the 6-track EP 'Public Verses Announcement' and a series of collaboratory poetry albums- 'Vocal Portraits'. The artist rants out some social commentary concerning black world modern slavery, water pollution, illegal mining and plastic waste. Folk storytelling and groovy sounds explore and subvert the sonic landscape of Ghana, in all its intensity, funkiness, absurdity and flair. Released May 1, 2017
